As the year comes to a close, it is our duty as geeks with a blog to count down our favorite geek moments of the year, so here you go - enjoy! (In no particular order...)
Stephen Colbert interviewing Smaug the Magnificent.
This video says it all.
The Return of Wierd Al Yankovic.
The release of his newest album "Mandatory Fun" was a throwback to my youth and a delight. His daily video premieres leading up to the album release were an ingeious way to introduce himself to a new generation of tech-savy fans. Our favorite: Word Crimes.
From the non-stop action of Winter Soldier and the subsequent revitalization of Agents of SHIELD - to blowing the roof off the Universe with Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel shows no signs of slowing down. January premieres the long-awaited Agent Carter and they've announced four new Netflix mini-series and a massive plan for their movie franchises all the way out to 2019! AND EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED - (stupid DC...)
Gotham premieres, and it is awesome.
Serious noir-meets-crime-drama, with so many backstory teasers sure to entice any geek! We can't wait for this one to start up again in January.
Five Nights at Freddy's 1 and 2
These indie point-and-click horror game is chock full of jump scares! Can you make it past Night 5? Have you seen the Golden Freddy?
Super Smash Bros for 3DS and WiiU was insane, awesome and insanely awesome.
2014 was WiiU's year with Mario Kart 8, Bayonetta 2 and Hyrule Warriors.
Other video games we loved in 2014 are South Park: Stick of Truth, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Kentucky Route Zero Pt. III (Dungeon Dame's Game of the Year) and Hatoful Boyfriend (Pigeon Dating... You know you want to try it.)
Cards Against Humanity
This year saw the release of the 5th expansion pack, as well as well as the 90s Nostalgia Pack! Very un-PC fun will ensue...
Epic trailers for things we are sooooo looking forward to next year...
But that is a story for tomorrow. ;)
What are your favorite geeky moments or things from 2014?

This year's Doctor Puppet special is here in time for Christmas. Enjoy!
The character of Luke Cage, in the comics, marries and fathers a child with Jessica Jones, so it is no surprise that they will be introducing his character on the A.K.A. Jessica Jones series.
The only Defender left uncast is Iron Fist - who I expect will be introduced during the Luke Cage series (since they are partners in 'Heroes for Hire.') This will lead up to the final mini-series- The Defenders.
I love that they are broadening the scope of the MCU and creating more characters that can and will be impacted as the feature films continue to roll out.
Ever wonder what a DC vs Marvel movie would look like?
Of course you have.
So has Alex Luther - who gives us a waking dream of the epic trailer courtesy of YouTube: Enjoy.
If you have not seen Season 2 yet - DO NOT WATCH THIS!!! Contains Spoilers!
Let’s start with some brief background information to give you a bit of perspective on this review. Tolkien’s The Hobbit is one of my favorite books of all time; I read it to my children two years ago when they were far too young to truly understand it, much less grasp its significance as a work of high fantasy or appreciate the depth of Tolkien’s world-building genius. I adored what Peter Jackson did with the LOTR trilogy, and was thrilled when I heard he would be filming The Hobbit.
I got a little worried when I heard he was making it into two movies, and became even more concerned when I heard he’d split it into not two but three parts.
And then the first movie came out...
So I went into The Battle of the Five Armies reluctantly. I considered waiting to see it until it came out on DVD, but a friend asked me to go see it with her tonight. My expectations were so low that I was actually grouchy this afternoon at the prospect of spending two and a half hours in a movie theater when I have so much to do at home to prepare for Christmas next week.
It’s official, Dragon Age: Inquisition has taken over my life. I’ve been dreaming about closing rifts all week.
If you’re an RPG fan and you’re hesitating over dropping the crazy money EA is charging for Inquisition, my advice is to GO FOR IT!

This game gets A++ for entertainment value.
At about 46 hours in and Level 12, here is my assessment of the game thus far:
1. Dragon Age: Inquisition is huge.
Just go ahead and put a “Gone to Thedas” sign on your door. So far it seems Inquisition can keep you entertained for…ever. The main quest lines are fantastic, and even offer some options that allow you to change the course of the game. Each area has tons of side quests to expand your influence.
2. What a world!
BioWare has taken the open world concept and made it even better (imo) by adding many different open world areas to discover throughout the game. Some are more linear than others, but you can explore, loot and gather to your heart’s content in each one. Oh, and the scenery is just gorgeous. The use of light in the game is incredibly realistic. If you can, turn those graphics up all the way and enjoy.
3. Customization junkies are welcome here.
For an adventure RPG, the game offers plenty of customization and optimization. The physical character creation tool has improved a little from previous games. Wait, except for the terrible hair – can we get some decent cuts up in here?! And why does half my head have razor burn??
We will bring you the scoop on life as a 'real' geek girl. From games, books, movies, cosplay and crafting. Need advice? We have a geek for that!
